Avery Brewing – Nutty but Sentimental

This cap comes to us from Avery Brewing – an Ellie’s Brown Ale, to be exact.  Reading the brewery’s website, this beer was named after the owner’s late Chocolate Lab, Ellie, as she had lots of character.  Ellie’s Brown Ale has lots of character as well – with hints of chocolate and a bold nuttiness – without being overly spiced or too sweet, it totally meets my approval of what a good brown ale should be!

I have to say, I really love a brewery that has meaning behind the names they give their beers.  Good brewers with sentimentality – sounds like the perfect recipe for a successful brewery!  Cheers Avery!
